Grandma’s Vanilla Pudding /Pastry Filling recipe 


- Advertisement -

4 eggs beaten

1 cup of sugar 

2 cups whole milk

1 tsp vanilla

1 cup cold water 

2 heaping TBSP all purpose flour 


In a medium sauce pan, mix sugar and milk together and bring to a rapid boil on a medium-high heat. Boil for about 3 minutes.  Remove from heat and let cool for about 2-3 minutes. Temper the eggs with the hot milk mixture and then add into the saucepan and return to the heat. Stir constantly.  Add the vanilla and continue to stir. 


Meanwhile in a small separate bowl, whisk together the cold water and flour until smooth.  Add to the egg mixture and continue to stir on medium-high heat until the mixture begins to thicken.  Once it thickens up to a more pudding like consistency remove from heat and set aside.  You can use for banana pudding, or as pastry cream for fruit tarts. 

Can be served warm or chilled.
